This Christian Broadcaster
Is No Jerry Falwell

By Michael Collins Piper

Until this reviewer first had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of Dale Crowley, Jr. some 25 years ago it had always been my impression that all Christian evangelical fundamentalists were unswerving hard-line supporters of the modern-day state of Israel.

However, meeting Dale Crowley and his wonderful wife, Mary, changed all that. Thanks to the Crowleys, I gained a fresh and much-needed new perspective on what Christianity is really all about.

These days — as it has been since 1979 — Crowley has been an often-lone voice of sanity on the radio airwaves in the Washington area. He has been bringing a message — over the region’s oldest and most influential Christian radio station, WFAX (AM 1220, online at — that has infuriated the Israeli lobby. His three different broadcasts, “The King’s Business,” “The Sound Doctrine Hour” and “Focus on Israel” have attracted a steady following among Christians who are dedicated to truth.

Crowley comes from the old-line evangelical tradition and that’s what makes his critique of the preachings of Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and Tim LaHaye all the more thought-provoking.


Dale Crowley's
On the Wrong Side of
Just About Everything
But Right About It All

No charge for shipping & handling inside the United States. Outside the U.S. add $3 per book S&H. All copies are autographed.

Now, at long last, in a handy 228-page volume, a collection of transcriptions, never before available in print, of some of Crowley’s best and most instructive radio broadcasts are now available.

Wryly entitled On the Wrong Side of Just About Everything But Right About It All, this book will give readers a lively perspective on not only the Bible and what some people teach about the Bible, but also a more precise understanding of how and why there are certain forces in the world today that have a vested interest in misleading Christians by propping up false prophets who are nothing more than Judas goats leading the lambs to slaughter.

Among other things, Crowley rejects the tired old theme that America has a “Judeo-Christian heritage.” No, says Crowley, America is a “Christian” nation and in one chapter he cites the Biblical scripture and American historical data which proves it and also disproves the myth of “Judeo-Christianity.”

In many respects, Crowley can be credited as the one earthly being responsible for the late-in-life conversion to Christianity of the outspoken Russian-born Jew, Haviv Schieber, whom I was also privileged to count among my personal friends.

One of the early founding fathers of modern-day Israel and later one of its most outspoken critics, Schieber worked closely with Crowley, educating his Christian ally in the ways and wiles of Israel. Crowley has a fascinating chapter about his work with Schieber in this volume.

Crowley also worked closely with the late Grace Halsell, a veteran journalist and world-traveler whose famous work, v, exposed the manipulation of American fundamentalist Christians by the power brokers in Zionist Israel and their behind-the-scenes Israeli lobby collaborators in Washington.

The bottom line is this: anyone who has even the slightest interest in the Middle East conflict — particularly the problem of Israel — needs to read and understand what Crowley has to say. Agree or disagree, his new book is a challenge laid down in no uncertain terms. It’s a volume that deserves careful study and Crowley asks you to try to refute him, if you can. But you can’t refute Crowley until you know what he actually has to say.

But be warned: Crowley is no amateur, easily dismissed. The son of one of the nation’s best-known evangelical preachers, Crowley — over his own 55-year career, following graduation from Bob Jones University, authored or otherwise published numerous books, pamphlets and other Christian literature. And he’s been a missionary in Japan (and his grown children have been missionaries worldwide as well). In the 1960s he was also a linguist and instructor at the University of Hawaii.

If you rely on Falwell, Robertson and LaHaye to tell you what the Bible says, you definitely want to check out Crowley’s new book, especially because you’ll probably be pleasantly surprised to see that, contrary to what you might expect, he’s more in line with your thinking than you might imagine. 

. . ..A journalist specializing in media critique, Michael Collins Piper is the author of Final Judgment, the controversial “underground bestseller” documenting the collaboration of Israeli intelligence in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. He is also the author of The High Priests of War, The New Jerusalem, The Judas Goats, and Dirty Secrets, all available from America First Books and FIRST AMENDMENT BOOKS. He has lectured on suppressed topics in places as diverse as Malaysia, Japan, Canada, Russia and Abu Dhabi.
